Charlotte Happenings – Exciting New Projects!
There are so many exciting projects coming out of our Charlotte office. Here is glimpse at some of them!
East Carolina University
Walker is currently working for East Carolina University on three new parking structures. A 700 space parking structure for the Student Union Center is under construction and expected to open January 2018. Advanced planning is also now complete on the two additional parking structures on the ECU campus at both the Student Services center and Life Sciences center. The Student Services Parking Structure will have 560 spaces and will be located on the north side of campus. The Life Sciences Parking Structure will have 500 spaces and will be located on the south side of campus. Both projects will begin schematic design in early 2017.
Virginia Western Community College
Walker will start the design in February of a new 515 space campus parking structure at Virginia Western Community College. Walker had previously completed a feasibility study in early 2016. This will be the first parking structure at VWCC and will feature a unique radial shape.
Walker is the parking consultant and structural engineer of a 750-space parking structure for the One Glenwood development, a mixed-use building with hotel, office building, and street-level retail space. The parking structure is expected to be 12 levels due to site restraints.
Museum of Life & Science
Walker is the prime designer of a new parking structure for Museum of Life & Science in Durham, NC, located on the southwest portion of the campus adjacent to the picnic dome area. Preliminary designs are for a 390 spaces 4-level 2-bay parking structure with angled parking and has an estimated construction completion in 2017.
Medical University of South Carolina
Design developments have been completed for the MUSC Cannon Street Garage in Charleston, SC. It will be a 1,400 space parking structure with a 10,000 SF Public Safety Office on the ground level. Construction is estimated to be completed in early 2018.
